One day you’re going to work,
Drinking on the weekends with your friends,
Spending money on things that make you happy,
Then several years later you can’t find a job,
Your friends don’t want to hang out with you any more,
Your family thinks you’re nuts,
You’re frustrated with everything and everybody,
You might have become a conspiracy theorist.

This scenario is all too familiar and it’s about time we come together to comprehend a few very important things, who we are, what’s happening to us and how we can deal with it.
Firstly, let’s define what we are and what we’re not,
To understand this fully requires the realization that there’s a spectrum and a bell curve,
So, no matter how clearly defined the parameters,
There are always extremes on either end of the scale to accommodate a minority,
But, the bulk of people usually cluster near the center in some form of balance. Continue reading Conspiracy Theorists, Why People Think You’re Crazy And How To Change It

Charlie Miller, a security researcher, is shown on July 21 in St Louis, Missouri, with a car that he figured out how to hack.

The complaints that flooded into Texas Auto Centre that maddening, mystifying week were all pretty much the same: Customers’ cars had gone haywire. Horns started honking in the middle of the night, angering neighbors, waking babies. Then when morning finally came, the cars refused to start.

The staff suspected malfunctions in a new Internet device, installed behind dashboards of second-hand cars, that allowed the dealership to remind customers of overdue payments by taking remote control of some vehicle functions. But a check of the dealership’s computers suggested something more sinister at work: Texas Auto Center had been hacked.

Chernobyl has killed one million people; will Fukushima kill five million?

(NaturalNews) The example of Chernobyl suggests that the death toll from the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan may eventually top one million, writes Robert Hunziker on CounterPunch.org.

In March 2011, a major earthquake and tsunami caused meltdowns at three separate reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, including four separate hydrogen explosions. The cores from all three reactors burrowed through the floors of their containment vessels, and their locations remain unknown – but they continue to pour off so much radiation that entering the area would be instantly lethal.

More than four years later, tens of thousands of area residents remain in temporary housing, unable to return to their homes in the radioactive exclusion zone. Even in areas that have reopened, however, some residents have refused to return, questioning the government line that those towns are once again safe.

More than five million could die

The only other comparable nuclear accident in history was the 1986 meltdown of the Chernobyl power plant in Ukraine. Scientists estimate that over the ensuing 30 years, more than one million people have died as a direct result of fallout from the disaster. Since approximately seven million people were exposed to radiation from the disaster, that makes a death rate of about one in seven (14 percent).

In addition to those exposed directly to the fallout, another 25,000 workers were killed due to exposure during the efforts to contain the radiation. Twenty percent of these were suicides due to radiation sickness. Continue reading Chernobyl has killed one million people; will Fukushima kill five million?
